Brazil: a 29.5MW landfill biogas plant, one of the biggest in the world
The plant is located in Caieiras, São Paulo. 21 modules, 8,000 tons of waste treated a day, and an installed capacity of 29.5MW to supply electricity to a city of 300,000 inhabitants. Part of the energy produced is used by the plant, and the remaining part is sold to the grid.
The project, baked by Solvì – a leading company in ecological waste treatment – considering the success of the Minas do Leão plant, was unveiled at COP21 Paris 2015. It also meets the targets of Brazil’s Solid Waste Policy and allows for considerable reductions in CO2 emissions.
